Back in the day when OnlyFans considered removing explicit content due to sponsorship deals, it was enough to scare a lot of models off of the platform. With so many performers looking for a new source of income and stability FanCentro popped up to save the day. Today we are going to be reviewing the popular fansite, FanCentro to see if it is worth your while.
If you’re a performer looking for a new way to make money or a fan in need of some new content then keep on reading!
Fansites like to keep their names simple and concise so FanCentro didn’t deviate from the path on this one. FanCentro is a fansite, which means that users pay a monthly subscription to see exclusive adult content from their favourite creators. The content doesn’t always have to be lewd but it is the primary use of these sites.
Fancentro was created back in 2017 but only gained popularity from 2019 onwards due to the rampant banning of adult performers and sex-related content on social media. The site was developed by entrepreneurs Stan Fiskin and Alan Hall who had previously launched two different iterations of the site that allowed models to create their own subscription website. Instead, the concept that took off was providing an all-in-one subscription website for the models themselves.
FanCentro, similar to most fansites, allows content creators to offer various services to their existing audiences such as custom content but we’ll get onto this a little bit later. The site has been a proud supporter of the rights of adult content creators and sex workers alike. Hence performers can find comfort in the fact that FanCentro is on your side.
In order to capitalise on the wave of performers fleeing OnlyFans, FanCentro were one of the first platforms to set up a migration tool which allowed you to move all of your content and hard work from OnlyFans directly onto their website. This made the idea of signing up a lot more appealing as it didn’t feel like starting from scratch again. While FanCentro explicitly states that they will not ban any users from uploading adult content they do have specific content standards that they uphold.
FanCentro does not permit or condone the depiction of:
So long as your content falls within these guidelines you should be totally fine and won’t be subject to any bans or penalties.
Joining FanCentro is very straightforward. Users are divided into fans and influencers who have their own respective sign-ups. Both onboarding processes allow you to sign up using existing Apple, Google and Twitter accounts but they always provide the option to register using your email if you’d prefer. Once you’ve done that if you wish to sign up as an influencer you’ll need to enter your model name. If you have a following that knows you by a specific name it’s always a good idea to keep it as similar to this as possible. For those who don’t have an existing following then you have the freedom to come up with whatever you like.
From here you’ll likely need to verify your email address by opening an email and clicking on a link sent to you by FanCentro. After this, you’re free to start setting up your profile but it won’t be live until you complete the ID verification. This is to make sure that you’re over 18 and actually the person you claim to be.
Models must submit a digital copy of the back and front of their ID as well as a picture of themselves holding up a piece of paper with FanCentro written on it. Finally, you’ll need to send them one more picture of you holding your ID. Once all of these documents are submitted it takes around 24 hours to get approved. Congratulations! You’re ready to start making some money.
While you wait for ID approval you’re free to start making and uploading content so don’t let this step get you bogged down.
FanCentro covers all of the main functions when it comes to the services that a fansite requires. They have the fancy on-site camming features as well as some innovative additions to the standard services you’d expect. So, let’s get into it.
Monthly subscription tiers are user-defined price points that give fans various different features based on what they’re willing to pay. For instance, the basic $5 a month subscription grants the user access to direct messages only. Whereas the $15 a month package gives fans access to the model's content feed, stories as well as direct messaging. These tiers are a great way to incentivise fans to purchase your services as it doesn’t neglect those who can’t afford a flat subscription rate.
It also allows fans to feel closer to the model and get their money’s worth when they’re paying for VIP monthly services.
The FanCentro feed is essentially their own take on the bread and butter of fansite content. The feed consists of the chronological posts that a model has uploaded which could be photoshoots, messages and clips you name it. When a fan subscribes to a model's profile various posts within the feed will be unlocked for them to view. This is coupled with the subscription tier list which means that those who pay more will have access to more exclusive content.
While we’re on the topic it’s always good to have a feed full of content. When users purchase a subscription they will have access to a backlog of posts since the day you started uploading. This is important as many savvy scrollers will want to make sure that they are getting a nice chunk of content for what they’re paying. So try to upload as regularly as possible. The more content your feed contains the more valuable it becomes.
An interesting feature that FanCentro has developed is the personalised domains. This means that all model profiles can be connected to their own domains that they happen to be in possession of. For instance, if you owned the domain lusciouslips.com you could connect this to your FanCentro profile meaning all of your visitors will be taken straight here.
This is a great way to make your profile look more professional and help with branding. Users that have forgotten your profile can always find you so long as they know your name. You can access this feature by heading into settings and clicking on “connect to an existing domain”.
Those who already have a successful website as an income, might not want to redirect all of their traffic to their FanCentro profile, which is totally understandable. Instead, you can simply promote your page here so users can browse at their leisure.
The success of Premium Snapchat begs the question of why more fan sites aren’t incorporating this feature into their platform. FanCentro allows models to upload whatever content they’d like to their stories. If you’re just having a nice meal or lounging in your lingerie you can choose to share this with your fans. All stories disappear after 24 hours meaning it’s the perfect tool to promote new content and give sneak previews.
However, viewing your stories isn’t available to anyone and everyone. Only fans that have subscribed to the appropriate tier of your profile will be granted access to view your stories. On the plus side, you can always entice subscriptions by letting everyone know the naughty content you’ll be uploading to your story over the next few days.
For those who are familiar with camming or going live to fans in general then you’ll be excited to know that FanCentro recently released a built-in live streaming service. Influencers can stream directly to their subscribers to provide a more intimate form of interaction with the fans that support you. Not only that but individuals that follow your profile but aren’t already subscribed can view your live streams, meaning it’s an awesome tool to convert followers into paying subscribers.
Ultimately, you can decide whether you’d like to put on a show to followers, subscribers or both at the same time!
Services such as Premium Snapchats and Instagram have one major downfall, that being no payment method to accept and track payments. A lot of inexperienced models opt to use things such as PayPal and CashApp not realising that they do not support adult content. A lot of the time this can result in accounts being frozen with money inside. To avoid this FanCentro allows models to charge users for access to their premium social media acting as an adult payment method, so to speak.
Again this is quite a unique feature that only those in touch with the community would have the foresight to include.
A great way for models to make a decent form of passive income is through uploading standalone clips. Sites such as ManyVids base their whole platform off of this premise so you know that it works. Models can simply record some steamy content, set the price and upload it to their profile. Now, any person perusing your profile can choose to purchase this clip whether they are subscribed or not. These videos will sit there and serve as nice little money-making gems if they’re good enough.
Some performers go to the lengths to make them free to act as a promotional tool for their subscriptions but how you use it is totally up to you.
If your fans want to show some extra love and support for you, FanCentro has included a tipping service where fans can leave small donations alongside a personal message. They also have a shareable link that you can send directly to subscribers.
The platform takes 20% of all influencers' earnings which is the same rate as OnlyFans so users shouldn’t feel like they’re being robbed. Payouts are made every Tuesday but can only be accessed after being active on the site for a minimum of three weeks. As is the case with most fansites there is a minimum withdrawal limit in place but this varies depending on the payment method you select for payouts.
Here are the payment methods and their respective minimum withdrawal limits for FanCentro:
You will of course have to see whether these payment methods are available in your country. Most of the cryptocurrency payouts will be worldwide but unfortunately, come with some of the highest minimum withdrawals.
For influencers that don’t have a techy background, FanCentro is the place to go. Setting up an account is quick, easy and takes only 24 hours to get approved. While they do not have a mobile app the website is optimised for tablet and mobile usage so you can certainly use it on the move. The user interface is available in five different languages French, Russian, Spanish, Arabic and Dutch which massively benefits both influencers and fans alike.
FanCentro is a very inclusive environment that has a wealth of male, female and transgender creators. Regardless of your background or sexual orientation the site has a place for you and an audience that will appreciate you.
Most of the time fan sites become somewhat of a community as influencers do a great job encouraging fellow models to sign onto the platform. FanCentro makes it so that models who are good at this can get paid for it. Their referral program works by providing a shareable link that other influencers can use to sign up to the platform. For every model that signs up using your link you get 10% of their total earnings, this obviously comes out of FanCentro’s share and not your friend's pockets.
In order to cover all bases, the site had to make sure that those without an existing following could make some money too. Introducing the CentroProfits scheme! Models looking to get some more exposure and build a following can use FanCentro to connect them with an affiliate who specialises in marketing social media accounts and fansite pages. Using this scheme it’s totally possible to boost your social media following and FanCentro subscribers.
In return, 25% of your revenue will go to the affiliate with another 25% going to FanCentro themselves. This does leave you with 50% of your own earnings but the benefit is you don’t have to pay any upfront marketing fees as you’re only charged on what you make. Not to mention, subscribers and any other fans that use your services outside of this affiliate link will still give you your standard 80%.
FanCentro is by no means revolutionary but is certainly a great fansite to find the content you’re looking for. The platform is already partnered with some of the biggest pornstars in the biz like Rachel Starr and Riley Reid so you can definitely guarantee some professional quality content in that respect. They also have some cool features like stories which make it seem more like a social media platform than an adult fansite.
A nice touch that FanCentro has incorporated is their search filter. It can be a pain trying to find a specific model on a fansite especially if you don’t know their name. Luckily, you can filter by categories, brands, social media followers and various other parameters to narrow down your search.
The free trials option is for users that simply cannot resist the temptation of an influencer’s profile and have to see what’s behind it. Fans get a limited number of sneak peeks to trial the content on a model's profile that they’re interested in. If you like what you see then it allows you to make a smart investment rather than a complete guess.
In conclusion, the site is great for models with an existing following looking to find another stream of income. They do have features in place like the CentroProfits scheme in order to level the playing field but influencers with a decent audience are likely to see success faster than those without. As for the fans, everyone's a winner! From professional pornstars to Instagram models the site has it all, you’re bound to find some content that gets you going.
The site is intuitive to use for both parties and has a certain level of professionalism that sets it apart from a lot of these sleazy adult sites. All in all, it’s a yes from us!
